Update ClamAV in Dapper

Anyone who still use Dapper as their backend server should realize that the engine is not updated. If you use Etch or Sarge, you are benefited from the Debian Volatile project. Anyway, I have follow the guide from Suares & co with slight modification. Well, here's what mainly we do:
  1. Download and extract the source from ClamAV site.
  2. Do command:
    # ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc/clamav --enable-dns-fix --enable-readdir_r --enable-bigstack
    # make; make install
  3. Restart all daemon:
    # /etc/init.d/clamav-daemon restart
    # /etc/init.d/clamav-freshclam restart
  4. Check logfiles and run freshclam to update.
Btw, don't forget to install GMP, BZip2, ZLib devel library before you compile ClamAV.
  1. GMP for signature.
  2. BZip2 for support.
  3. ZLib is mandatory.
